The Chicago Blackhawks placed goalie Corey Crawford on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury Friday and recalled Jean-Francois Berube from Rockford.

Several fans thought the worst had fallen on the heads of the Hawks when the announcement was made, but a recent update gives a better idea of how long the netminder's absence can be. 

According to Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun Times, Crawford will be re-evaluated on a week-to-week basis, and should't be sidelined for too long. 

Crawford played the entire game and made 31 saves during the Hawks’ 4-3 overtime loss to the Dallas Stars on Thursday. During the third period of that tilt, Crawford appeared to get back to his feet slowly while making a save.

Crawford is 11-7-2 with a 2.29 goals-against average, seventh in the league. He’s tied for fourth with a .930 save percentage.
